UPDATE: Harvin has returned to the game.
Despite having Adrian Peterson and Cedric Griffin, who actually made the start today, the Vikings handed the ball to Percy Harvin on a rush attempt early in the first quarter against the Redskins.
Perhaps, not surprisingly, Harvin – who’s been beat to hell lately with an illness, finger injury, ankle injury and rib injury – hurt himself again after rushing into a pile of Redskins, left the game and walked to the locker room.
Early indications are that Harvin might have suffered an arm injury.
After not utilizing Harvin much last week (he caught three passes for eight yards and rushed once for minus-one yard), the Vikings might have been using Harvin to try to jump-start the offense. But it’s hard to jump-start anything when one of your top receivers is in the locker room.
